Follow-Up On BB Creams


A few months ago, I blogged about the rise of the BB cream in other parts of the world like Europe and USA. Balm Blemish or BB creams are an Asian trend with many brands available at most cosmetic and pharmacy counters. This little wonder offers an all-in-one service (primer, SPF, cover, anti-aging). To me, it is like a tinted moisturizer although consistency, coverage and colours vary drastically from all the brands. My take on it is to try for yourself if you feel this might be for you. Of the brands I’ve tried/ tested, Illamasqua Skin Base offer a great range of shades and is great as foundation without the need to pile on more makeup/ powder. And Garnier BB roll on cream works beautifully for me, in fact I use it as my undereyes cream with concealer. **Note, I paid for my own Illamasqua and Garnier products.

Brands offering their own take of the BB cream include Clinique, Smashbox, Boscia, Erborian, Illamasqua Skin Base, Bobbi Brown BB and MAC Prep and Prime BB Beauty Balm.
